Details from our winning submission, STAR Procurement: data transparency, analysis, management and reporting

When STAR was formed there was a big challenge to bring together the information from three different Councils. Getting this information together has involved a lot of work with stakeholders and some creative thinking on how we collect and report data.

What we've achieved:

  • One 'contract register' that holds information for our three Councils- it holds all the information required for transparency reporting, savings and social value
  • Monthly performance reports to support team development, continuous improvement and efficiency
  • We create regular work plans to review workloads and where the Councils could procure together to save money
  • Quarterly key performance indicators which detail changes and how we're doing against targets
  • Detailed spend analysis for our three Councils identifying non compliant spend, where we could make more savings and where the councils could procure together to save money
  • Working closely with the AGMA procurement hub to improve the quality of the data we provide to SpendPro in order to improve the quality of the data we receive back
  • Monthly website and Twitter data
